    How Emission Certificate Allocations Distort Fossil Investments: The German Example

    Despite political activities to foster a low-carbon energy transition, Germany currently sees a considerable number of new coal power plants being added to its power mix. There are several possible drivers for this "dash for coal", but it is widely accepted that windfall profits gained through free allocation of ETS certificates play an important role. Yet the quantification of allocation-related investment ...

    Europe's Twenties: A Study Using the WIATEC Model

    In this paper, we use a computable general equilibrium model (WIATEC) to study the potential impact of implementing Europe's 20-20-20 climate policy. The results show that the economic costs of implementing the policy are only moderate and within the range of recent empirical evidence. Furthermore, they also indicate that there is a possibility that the existing allocations to the Europena sectors ...

    Green, Brown, and Now White Certificates: Are Three One Too Many? A Micromodel of Market Interaction

    Our paper deals with modeling the effects of introducing a market-based tool for improving end-users' efficiency in an energy market which is already regulated through a cap-and-trade system for green house gas emissions and a quota system meant to improve competitiveness of energy produced using renewable resources. Our results show that the regulation of energy demand achieves its underlying objects ...

    Impacts of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme on the Industrial Competitiveness in Germany: Research Report 3707 41 501

    How does emissions trading influence the competitiveness of the German industry? By increasing the costs of domestic production, emissions trading may induce the relocation of industrial production and the associated emissions – e.g. to non-EU countries with few or no climate protection regulations. On behalf of the German Emissions Trading Authority (DEHSt) at the Federal Environment Agency, the impacts ...

    Trade and Climate Policies: The Role of Market Structure, Strategic Behaviour, and the Supply Side of Carbon ; Dissertation

    Als globales Problem ist der Klimawandel eine der größten Herausforderungen der heutigen Zeit und muss im Kontext einer zunehmenden Globalisierung verstanden werden. Die vorliegende Dissertation untersucht die Zusammenhänge zwischen internationalem Handel und Klimapolitik und leistet einen Beitrag zum wissenschaftlichen Diskurs, indem sie diese aus zwei unterschiedlichen Perspektiven betrachtet: zum ...

    A Note on Networks of Collaboration in Multi-market Oligopolies

    In this note, we extend the Goyal and Joshi’s model of collaboration networks in oligopoly to multi-market situations. We examine the incentive of firms to form links and the architectures of the resulting equilibrium networks in this setting. We then present some results on efficient networks.

    Sowing the Wind and Reaping the Whirlwind? The Effect of Wind Turbines on Residential Well-Being

    We investigate the effect of the physical presence of wind turbines on residential well-being in Germany, using panel data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) and a unique novel panel data set on more than 20,000 wind turbines for the time period between 2000 and 2012. Using a Geographical Information System (GIS), we calculate the proximity between households and the nearest wind turbine as ...

    Market Power Rents and Climate Change Mitigation: A Rationale for Coal Taxes?

    In this paper we investigate the introduction of an export tax on steam coal levied by an individual country (Australia), or a group of major exporting countries. The policy motivation would be twofold: generating tax revenues against the background of improved terms-of-trade, while CO2 emissions are reduced. We construct and numerically apply a two-level game consisting of an optimal policy problem ...

    Does Subsidizing Investments in Energy Efficiency Reduce Energy Consumption? Evidence from Germany

    Improving energy efficiency is one of the three pillars of the European energy and climate targets for 2020 and has led to the introduction of several policy measures to promote energy efficiency. The paper analyzes the effectiveness of subsidies in increasing energy efficiency in residential dwellings. An empirical analysis is conducted in which the effectiveness of subsidies on the number of dwelling ...
